    The Education Minister's pleased with the progress on the Government's donations scheme for decile 1-7 schools

    The Education Minister's pleased with the progress on the Government's donations scheme for decile 1-7 schools


    More than 15-hundred schools have opted in to receive 150 dollars per child - instead of asking parents for donations.

    Chris Hipkins says it's slightly more than he was expecting - with 90 percent of schools now getting the extra funding.

    He says it's a really successful outcome for a voluntary scheme.
